Title: Show Some Love
Post by: Sister Wolf on July 01, 2011, 09:54:42 PM
Ladies & Gentlemen of the TSP Forum:

http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?action=treasury

The admins of TSP would like to make being an admin at TSP their actual job. We spend our weekend hours fixing the forum when it crashes, and we would like to be free to spend more hours creating modifications and writing code for the forum to make the user experience that much better.

Basically, we'd like to be able to STOP saying things like "no" and "go pound sand" when you ask for us to do very, very specific things to this forum for you guys. But we can't do that at the moment, because we have limited amounts of time that we can spend here.

Please help us with that wee little problem, by donating some of your hard-earned cash to the Admins fund. We don't actually expect to hit our (somewhat ambitious) mark, but we think that if you were to donate, say, $3 a month to the forum (a total of $36.00 a year, or 10 cents a day), we might be extremely surprised at what can be done. We've seen you guys blow our minds before. We'd like to see it again.

The TSP Gear Shop (Rockwell Survival) is handling the donations. This is NOT a charity. This is NOT tax deductible. It is a gift from you to us. As we get things updated, we will move donators into their own membergroup, with a few extra permissions, and possibly their own board on TSP for extra-fun things that regular members won't have access to. At the moment, that will not be the case, but once we get that set up, we will be more than happy to move prior donators into that group by request and after having shown proof (just your paypal email address, nothing more) that you've been a donator.

Thank you for the opportunity that you've given us to do what we most love to do. Being an admin at TSP has never been anything less than the most gratifying experience of our lives.

Love,
The TSP Administrators

PS - Feel free to write in your own donation amount if you don't see one that matches what you'd like to give. Thank you again!!

Thank you guys so much for the big donation push yesterday (and today)! We're about 3,683 $3.00 donations away from closing this month out and working on August! (or 3,974 $36 donations away from closing out for the year!)

That's amazing. We knew that you guys were awesome, but we didn't figure on you guys helping us out like this. THANK YOU!

Edited to include new numbers!

Folks, I am not one to use terms like "TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY" lightly. 8)

When this idea came up for discussion among the admins, I was very pessimistic.  I made an estimate of the maximum possible donations we were likely to get.

So far, the money is coming in at nine times my "maximum" estimate. :excited:

I assure you that this extra cash is going to make a big difference for some of our admins.  Thank you all for that.

For me, the cash is pretty darn nifty, but what really gets me is that you folks feel our work is valuable to you personally.  I enjoy being an admin here, but getting this kind of feedback has been a huge boost.

This forum has collected many truly amazing human beings.  I'm honored to be among you.

Thanks, most sincerely. :)

I'm glad you guys decided to do this, I'm always looking at the gear shop but still haven't gotten anything... I don't really need anything else and I'm trying to rid my ways of being a pack rat... Other than the necessary prep goods.

I just wanted to support the site, but missed out on the copper rounds again...maybe next time...but until then.. here's my support for the year...good luck..hope it helps. You guys spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME working on this stuff...but we all really appreciate it. ;)

Title: Re: Show Some Love
Post by: Sister Wolf on September 01, 2011, 01:59:16 PM
I've revamped the donations to more accurately reflect what has been given in the last two months. I've also changed it so that it shows the whole thing as a yearly goal rather than a monthly goal. That means it will continue to more accurately reflect who has donated until the end of 2011. Next year, the goal will be more (because I omitted the monthly goals for January through June this year, since we didn't start this until July).

I would love to see that goal go up way over 100% this year!!! To those of you who have donated, THANK YOU. To those of you who make this forum a better place just by being you, THANK YOU. We appreciate you very, very much.

I did not know you were seeking assistance until seeing a banner across the top. You might want to advertise a little more broadly because I only saw the request by chance rather than systemically.

I am happy to throw in for a good cause. The board is great!

Advertise more broadly?  Hmm, I think the software would let us put about 30 more ads on this page... ;D

I'd love to help support you all if I could. (I'm having a hard enough time just keeping myself afloat right now.) Talk about a great cause! This is the best forum on the net for a prepper to learn, but also for homesteading, guns and ammo, auto problems and advice... the list goes on and on. All of you mods are wonderful people who truly care about the forum and it's members.

To all of the mods here, a great big THANK YOU for all that you do!  :clap:
And to everyone who has been able to help support them in all they do, a huge THANK YOU to you as well!  :clap:

Just saw this.  I put in my $0.02 * n = $36.00 :)

It didn't register however, I sent a message to site admin with my paypal unique transaction ID to resolve.

You guys do an awesome job.  I am an Admin on another board and it is LOW LOW volume in comparison to this one and I can hardly keep up.... (and often don't)  So I can image the workload you all have.  I could see having some kind of income to spend hours on these forums can make so you could quit a part time job and do this instead.  Most posters have no idea what it takes to work on the site in the background & be visible in the foreground so the user base knows who you are.

Thank you to all that you do admins!

Until the next time,

MrThirteen

It looks like the transaction went through.  SW will have to confirm that the money actually appeared in our account.

TSP Challenge:
I challenge every TSPer to throw down at least $3 per month and help these guys make this forum even better than it already is.  If you have ever gotten advice that you've learned here on this forum, it's certainly worth that.  You can't be reading this without a computer and an internet connection, so don't tell me you can't afford $3 (you can cash in your beer cans to come up with that much).
